Four persons were killed while several houses including the house of the village head were burnt Friday, when unknown gunmen attacked Mile One Village in Tafan District, Kaduna State.

A resident, who preferred anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Kafanchan that the hoodlums launched an attack against the residents between 2 p.m. and 10p.m on Friday.

The Interim Chairman of Jema’a local Government Area, Bege Katuka, confirmed the incident via telephone.

He said: “I just left the affected village barely 30 minutes ago, I was there to assess the extent of damage.’’

Reports say the residents of the neighbouring villages of Gidan Waya, Ungwuan Ninzo and Ungwuan Kagoro have fled for fear of possible attacks.

NAN reports that the villages as well as Kaduna State College of Education have been turned to ghost towns.

NAN also recalls that Pasakori Village which shares boundaries with Mile One Village came under similar attack on Thursday. (NAN)

    What are the government doing to salvage this region of Kaduna State from the vicious murderers? why is it that the attack is just taking place in the zone that are populated by Christians?….The government must act fast because failure to do so will lead to anarchy where the atmosphere will be harsh for everyone.
